Democratic filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday released raw, unedited footage he captured for his latest film, “Fahrenheit 11/9.” Moore claims to have footage of the suspect behind the bombs sent to Democrats and CNN, Cesar Sayoc.
Moore detailed how he acquired the footage in a blog post on his website. He also took the time to place blame on Trump for Sayoc’s actions (emphasis mine):
My crew first encountered Cesar Sayoc, the mail bomber/terrorist, 20 months ago when we went down to Melbourne, Florida, to film Trump’s first “Trump 2020 Re-election Rally” — just one month after his inauguration. My direction to my producer Basel Hamdan and our longtime collaborator Eric Weinrib was to NOT film Trump, but rather only film the people who came out to see him. My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn’t need to hear anything more from Trump’s mouth — we already knew everything we needed to know about him.
Who we needed to understand were our fellow Americans, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, easily fed a pile of lies so large and toxic that we wondered if there would ever be a chance that we could bring them back from the Dark Side.
Our footage of Mr. Sayoc would never make it into the final cut of what would be the film that is now in its last week in cinemas across America. But I’d like to share it with you, if only to give you a momentary glimpse of him in action (all are free to use this video and share it).
